The National Enquirer reports that Jessica Simpson’s dad has come out to family members — and that’s the real reason his wife is divorcing him. 32-year-old Jessica, who recently gave birth to a daughter, was reportedly “blindsided” by her father’s gay confession.
“Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling,” the source told Radar Online. “She thinks she has very good gaydar, especially since a lot of her friends are gay, but she did not see this coming at all.
From National Enquirer:
The stunning confession was the REAL reason wife Tina filed for divorce from Joe, her husband of 34 years, in late September – and the family insider says Jessica’s billion-dollar fashion empire could be caught up in the ugly tug-of-war that’s sure to follow.
“Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,” an insider divulged.
“He told them that he’d tried to continue in his marriage to Tina, but he couldn’t go on any longer and deny the fact that he had these feelings for men.
“Joe said it wasn’t fair to her, and it wasn’t fair to him.”
